Superior Street Welcomes New Principal!

We are so happy to introduce Mrs. Alejandra Ayala as our new principal. Mrs. Ayala has been in education for over 25 years. She is not new to LAUSD; in fact she is a product of LAUSD. She began her education as a student at Victory Boulevard Elementary and returned to that same school, first as a paraprofessional, and then as a teacher. She is a National Board Certified Teacher with 18 years of teaching experience. Most recently Mrs. Ayala held the position of Instructional Coordinator at the District level. In her spare time she enjoys reading as well as traveling particularly with her husband and two sons. She says Superior is “a hidden` gem” and feels lucky to be here. We are lucky to have her and are looking forward to her leadership.

Students are dancing the night away.....

The Once Upon a Dance Winter Gala was recently held on December 2, 2022 and graciously hosted by Lawrence Middle School. The dance was an opportunity for students to showcase their dancing thus far in the school year. It was co-hosted by Chatsworth Park and Beckford. Additionally, students participated from Welby Way Elementary and Cantara Elementary.

Young men and ladies were paired from different schools and had never danced together before. After all the students were given opportunities to showcase their dances, students that demonstrated excellence were chosen during multiple rounds concluding with 4th and 5th grade "winners" for the evening and were rewarded with medallions.

It was a great event with hundreds of students, parents, and guests in attendance. Be looking for the season-concluding dance competition in June 2023.

Chatsworth Park UPD knows their community businesses

The first-grade students at Chatsworth Park Urban Planning Magnet recently conducted a walking field trip to the community. During the field trip, they looked at many of the businesses in and around the school and photographed businesses. After they returned from the field trip, the students identified the business they which to research to determine whether it was an asset or liability to the community. They were asked not only to identify whether it was an asset or liability but why was it an asset or liability. To further engage their families each student was asked to construct a model of their chosen business. All of the student's models were showcased at a school-wide Project Based Learning day. At the conclusion of the activity, the models were given to the businesses they represented and many were proudly displayed.
